2 minute torches before bed

torches 7

I wanted to try out a quick idea before the boys went to bed, to see just how quick it was! We are having an Olympic themed first birthday party for small boy in 4 weeks and I wanted to have a craft table with torches, crowns and medals for the children to make. But they need to be ultra simple!

Voila - 2 minute torches!

You need - toilet roll, tissue paper, crepe paper streamer (or more tissue or paper would work too), glue (I used spray adhesive to save time but it does leave your fingers sticky, if you are not careful).

Tear your crepe paper into strips, leaving a little extra either end of the length of your toilet roll. Spray or cover the tube in glue and stick the strips to the roll, stuffing the edges into the roll.

Take your tissue paper and layer it on top of each other, then stuff into your roll!
